Need Help With a Title

TCM showed a short the other night - I believe after Stormy Weather - where a lady in a boarding house didn't have her rent money. The others that lived there raised the money and turned it into a jam session. Anyone know the title?


I didn't see it, but found an entry in the book "Encyclopedia of American Short Films, 1926-1959" by Graham Webb.

The plot listed for Spreadin' the Jam (1945, MGM) sounds like the film you're talking about.

I have seen this many years ago.  I don't recall the title, but I seem to remember that Jan Clayton (remember her?) was in it.

Jan Clayton was in Spreadin' the Jam.  It's about a young woman who is unable to pay her rent and gets help from her fellow tenants who organize a rent party with swing music and dancing.
